    Last week there was cold temps in my area and my car was making some noises that I had`nt heard before. Mine were coming from the rear of the car. Now that the weather has warmed up, the creaks and groans have disappeared....thankfully

    OURS DOES IT TOO!!

    We get this same tire rubbing sound!!

    To us, it seems to be coming from the drivers side front wheel well, and usually at lower speeds when turning left.

    My first thought was a build up of snow & ice in the wheel wells,
    but all was clear around both front and rear tires.

    This symptom will be added to the list that we've started for our first dealer visit.

    I had my 2010 SRX in for service today and was talking to the service rep about my previous complaint with noise on turning at slow speed during cold weather(see above). He mentioned that he was aware of others having a similar problem. During the conversation he looked up my vehicle and found a recall had recently been issued(11.17.10). I think this was different from the previous power steering recall in that this recall was for the replacement of several parts while the previous called for inspection and replacement of a pinched hose if required - also this was outside of the previous vin numbers on the original recall. I have not recieved a notice from GM yet on the recall. The dealer ordered the parts - we will see if this corrects my problem.

    Ok, well we had our SRX in for the recall on the steering that Ajrohman stated above. It didnt fix the noise. We are bringing it back in on Monday for them to look at the problem again. When we had it in the other day for the recall it wasnt making the noise at the time but the next day it got colder and sure enough it started making the noise again. Sounds like a bunch of us are having the same exact problem so as soon as I get it in on Monday I will post what they find out.

    I'm going to change my name to Unhappy Cadillac Owner. I am going to pick up my car tomorrow morning because the dealer is telling me that the parts to fix my car are on back order and it could be up to three weeks before they come in and they want the rental car back. I think she said it was the strut assembly. She said with a new car sometimes you have to wait for them to manufacture the parts!
    This will be 5 trips to the dealer(s) and 3 rental cars and lots of missed work and still the car is not fixed. For those of you having the same problem, I'm sorry. I've never had a new car with so many problems. As for the bumping sound in the rear end, they haven't addressed that problem yet. Soooo...If you see a White SRX pulling in to a parking lot and it's making a loud roar like air brakes.....it's just me...waiting for my parts to come in!!

    Carolinamom42 - so have they determined that the strut assembly is causing this noise? I see that "farinacci" above had the power steering recall completed but is still getting the noise. The dealer has ordered parts for my steering recall but no word on delivery. I now have doubts that the power steering recall will fix my problem.

    That would be correct. The recall for the power steering line has nothing to do with "noises". It's related to a potential power steering fluid leak.

    I just took my 2010SRX into the dealer for my routine oil change. I noticed a ticking noise near the driver side and literally as I was saying there's this noise....the service guy said with the steering wheel. I said no and he said oh, there's a huge problem happening with this sort of grinding noise when the vehicle is cold. He said Cadillac is aware of it but at this time there isn't a fix. They have to make something for it but to date there is nothing available. Hope this helps everyone.

    I must be lucky. I haven't had this happen yet and it's gotten down to the upper 20's here. (Knock on wood!)

    Re: Roaring/Rubbing sound when it's cold..anyone else???

    So tonight I was thinking while I was driving how much I love my SRX and how much i hate that loud noise it makes when it's cold outside and then I read cadigirlchicago2's post and I decided what to do. I'm gonna call cadillac as many times as it takes until they figure a fix. Wonder what part I'm waiting on from my dealer that they said would take three weeks to get here if there really is no fix for the problem. Have any of you that are having the same problem heard anything yet?

    Re: Roaring/Rubbing sound when it's cold..anyone else???

    I just went and picked mine up today. They said it is the upper strut mounts and they are on back order and they dont know when they will come in. I asked if it is the same part that is on the vehicle right now and he said yes. I also asked if it is going to do the samething since its the exact same part, he said there is no guarantee that it wont but he did think it would. I think that it probably will just give it time since the ones I have in there now only have 9,000 miles on them. But I guess we will see what happens. My guess is that they will have to engineer a fix for that and then we will have to go back in and get that part put on. Oh well I still really like our SRX its a great vehicle.

    Re: Roaring/Rubbing sound when it's cold..anyone else???

    Ok, 1 week ago I took my 2010 SRX for the oil change and found out about this grinding kind of noise and was warned of this problem, at the time mine wasn't making the noise ( 2010 SRX Luxury ). Today the noise started!!! I'm in chicago and it's been cold here. I called the dealership and talked to the same guy who told me about the problem last week. It's something to do with the axl in the steering wheel. He said they have come up with 3 designs and they are all making the noise so far. No fix available. He said it's not a safety issue, just an annoying noise. Hell yeah it's annoying! You buy a cadillac and expect it to be a primo vehicle. I'm annoyed now. No fixes, the best he said was to call cadillac to complain. He said the 2011's are doing the same thing and it's all cold weather related. This was my 1st cadillac and it was fine up until today, I have aprox 19,000 miles on it and it's 14 months old ( bought it Oct 2009 ).

    Re: Roaring/Rubbing sound when it's cold..anyone else???

    We took our pos into the dealer for the P/S Hose Bracket recall / replacement this past Thursday...

    I mentioned all of my current issues to the service writer, with this Rubbing / Roaring Sound being my main complaint.

    Sure enough, in their doing a visual inspection, the Tech found nothing wrong!

    So they ordered replacement Front Upper Strut Bushings.... and Here's where we are this a.m.

    Our temps here today are in the +45* / +50* range and this Rubbing / Roaring IS WORSE NOW than ever before?????

    So I just called and talked to the service writer to see if they had done any adjustments of any kind that would have made our Rubbing Noise issue worse,

    he said they had not!!

    I can't believe that any manufacture that's been in business as long as GM / Cadillac can't find / use / design a strut package that doesn't make this irritating sound.

    *** Just drove the car again here a bit a go, and now the Creeks and Groans seem to be coming from the Rear Suspension and the Steering Column?????

    Unhappy Re: Roaring/Rubbing sound when it's cold..anyone else???

    I never know if I'm happy to see that others are having the same problem as me or if it's bad because it usually involves parts that are on backorder. Well, I have a 2010 SRX Performance with 5555 miles on it as of last nights fill up. I live in Orlando, Florida and yesterday we had a cold snap. I still can't believe that I have never heard this problem, but yesterday morning as I backed out of my driveway it started. Sounds like it's coming from the right side under the dashboard. Only happens when I turn the wheel, so I'm sure it's the same issue that everyone's having. Today is even colder, so of course it's doing it again. Now I am curious to see what happens when it warms up in a few days. I'm very disappointed with Cadillac, but I guess I'm glad I don't live in a cold climate or it may be worse. Any updates are appreciated.
